I'm Peyton and I am...
A proud alumna of Colorado State University's journalism and langue programs and a first-generation college graduate.
A born storyteller writing impactful pieces that resonate with my readers and move the community. My favorite journalistic selections (to read and write) tend to be in-depth feature pieces that detail a specific person or place of unique interest.
I especially have fun capturing landscapes and nature scenery, or otherwise staging lengthy photoshoots with my cat.
In a tribute to my Spanish heritage, I was determined to bring the long-lost language back to my family. I spent eight academic years studying the language and culture. I still enjoy books and podcasts in Spanish to keep my feet wet.
My case of wanderlust stems from an insatiable fascination and need to experience cultures so completely different from mine. Also, the breathtaking views along the way are a major plus.
As a true-blue wilderness lover, when I'm not reading or writing at home, I'm most often reading or writing somewhere in the mountains, where I enjoy backpacking, fishing and climbing rocks.
